Ella Ballerina!

Hello everyone!
Check out this cutsie elephant that I have used on my card. I took this image from the same colouring pages website that I take all my images from. I am not a big fan of elephants but this dancing elephant caught my eye! She is just so freakin adorable! Muaah! Kisses to her! I have named her Ella Ballerina! LOL
Oh well, the flowers... hand drawn (again). I used marker on the red one to give it a deeper look, the light gray one is coloured with a very light gray colour pencil and the last one was left as it is. I made several dots on it as they were looking so dull and "not so cute" without the filling.

I coloured the elephant with a couple of shades of gray and then I applied charcoal pearl paint on it to give it a sparkly look (sheen). I painted the skirt and the ballerina shoes with poster paint.
